Prince Harry wins phone hacking lawsuit against Daily Mirror publisher

LONDON: Prince Harry won his phone hacking lawsuit Friday against the publisher of the Daily Mirror and was awarded over £140,000 ($180,000) in the first of his several lawsuits against the tabloids to go to trial.
Justice Timothy Fancourt in the High Court found that phone hacking was “widespread and habitual” at Mirror Group Newspapers over many years and private investigators “were an integral part of the system” to gather information unlawfully. He said executives at the papers were aware of the practice and covered it up.
